Because who doesn't like drinking something called "slime"?
Japanese game company Square Enix has collaborated in the past with Osaka-based beverage maker Suntory to release game-themed drinks for its Final Fantasy series. This time around Dragon Quest gets its own beverages as part of a promotion for Dragon Quest Monster Battle Road Victory.
The drinks come in two flavors: blue Hoimi Cider and orange Mera Tropical. As website Siliconera points out, the names are based off spells in Dragon Quest with "Hoimi" referring to "heal" and "Mera" meaning "Frizz".
No wonder Suntory has laced its heal cider with B6.
Priced at ¥284 ($3.25), the drinks go on sale July 13 in Japan and come with with a redeemable in-game avatar item.
Guzzling slime has never been this cute.
